Maximum RAM in Z580 is 8gb(as in the net). But lenovo solution centre is showing 32gb as maximum. I know that there are a plenty of models of z580. It also shows that there are 4 memory slots!!!!!!!!!!(Even speecy[an application for system specs] shows 4 memory slots). pls help me..................Can i put 16 gb ram,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,where can i find third and fourth slots.(right click the images to open in new tab,so that you could see it in full size). And even my video card is gt635m where as in the net it is shown gt630m

Could you expand the "SPD" part and make another screenshot? You have a weird amount of RAM (probably 4+2GB), and it says you have slower 667MHz/1333MTs sticks
Anyway, I doubt there's more than 2 memory slots. Here's my suggestions:
- If you use applications, that can eat a lot of RAM like video editing, rendering, virtualisation, then go for 2x8GB 1600MTs, or if you can afford it 1866MTs
- If you use it only for general stuff and games, then 8GB will be enough. You can either buy new 2x4GB set, or replace existing 2GB with a 4GB stick. It's a good idea to match the speed of all RAM sticks, but it is not necessary. Either way going for less memory will allow you to save up money and for example you could buy a SSD.

Wow your configuration is messed up! You have two sticks of different speed, which means your computer is forced to run at the slower sticks speed. You definitely should buy a DDR3-1600 (PC-12800) 4GB stick and get rid of the 1GB one. It will not improve FPS unless you're using integrated graphics, but should decrease loading times, and overall system responsiveness. If possible, buy the same as you already have. You have the model number on one of the screenshots (Hyundai one).
I went through technical documentation and now I'm sure you have 2 memory slots. This has to be some kind of error. Mainly high-end laptops have (and not necessarily) more than 2 memory slots.

Thanks, I knew from the starting that my laptop has weird configuration. In the lenovo web site, they say z580 have gt630 and i got gt635 and that 4 ram slots thing had really blown my senses away. Thanks for your advice.

Z580 model 59347636 has 635M. Out of curiosity... could you paste a screenshot from GPU-Z app?

This is very weird because the tech specs of this card match GT630 not 635.
PhysX should work by default. To be honest I think it might be just a glitch in GPU-Z. On my Y580 it says my GPU doesn't support CUDA. Yeah right... I'm sure you don't have to worry about it. If you still do, download the newest drivers from Nvidia site (if you have the newest just wait for the next one), and make a clean installation. There will be an option like that during installation. It will reset all saved profiles and install everything from the scratch including PhysX drivers.
